Hampshire Police have charged a 32-year-old woman after two paramedics were threatened with a knife as they were detained against their will for around 20 minutes in a property in Gosport.
Officers were called to Tudor Close at around 17:50 hours on Sunday 13th September after control room staff at South Central Ambulance Service became aware that one of their crews was being held at knifepoint.
The paramedics had responded to the address after they received an emergency call by someone who was requesting urgent medical help.
But after paramedics arrived at the scene, they were held in the property at knifepoint. Nobody was injured during the incident, and a female was arrested shortly after the arrival of the police.
Kylie Mancell of Tudor Close was charged with common assault of an emergency worker and false imprisonment.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
